Interview with Librarians

This month is Library Lovers’ Month, so let’s shift the focus to the masterminds of the library: the librarians! Librarians are a major part of the library, and without them, we wouldn’t know where anything was or where to begin to look! The Press visited the Lumpkin County Library and interviewed the librarians, giving them the moment in the spotlight they deserve.
